The classroom PC is projected by default.

Internet / network access
The classroom PC is built into the lectern.
|Logging into the PC||Using a CD / DVD||Using a USB flash drive|
The classroom PC is already connected to the UCT network, which allows you to access the internet and your network drives (i.e. your F: and G: drives).
You can play CDs or DVDs using the classroom PC's built-in optical drive. The drive is located on the left hand side of the lectern.
To access content from your own USB flash drive, plug your flash drive into one of the USB ports on the left hand side of the lectern.
|Caution: Do not save any files onto the classroom PC because your data will be lost when the PC reboots. Save all files to your own USB flash drive.|
The document camera acts as a writing surface - similar to writing on an overhead projector slide. It can also project existing documents, images, and objects.
When the CSS consultant sets up the portable document camera, ask for a quick overview of how to operate the device.
This classroom is equipped with a hearing loop - which enhances audio quality for hearing-impaired audience members. To ensure hat the hearing loop functions correctly, please use a microphone when conducting your lecture.
|Lectern microphone||Lapel microphone|
Note: When you switch the mic on, if the light on the body pack is red or amber, the battery is low or in error. In this case, contact Classroom Support Services for assistance.
